CRY America is a 501c3 non-profit organization driven by its vision of a just world in which all children have equal opportunities to develop to their full potential and realize their dreams. We ensure that basic rights of education, healthcare and protection from exploitation and abuse are restored to underprivileged children, including street children, girl children; children bonded in labor, children of commercial sex workers, physically and mentally challenged children and children in institutions.
CRY America believes that:Children are the most vulnerable segment of any society. Their situation provides the most stringent metric of a society's health and a rallying point with the widest appeal across all parts of society.
Ensuring child rights is the most sustainable solution to the myriad social, economic and political issues confronting India. Sustainable change at the level of the community is only possible when communities themselves develop and implement solutions, cooperatively.Non-profits when linked to each other and in coalition with business, government and media, can create a critical mass that achieves immense synergies and scale, and the strength to influence policy.
Very simply, we act as the link between (a) people like you who want to help underprivileged children and (b) the child in need, wherever she might be, in India or the USA. We do this by channelizing the concern, goodwill, time, money and skills of thousands of individuals, like you, towards child development projects run by committed grassroots projects.
